There are some beautiful gardens in our city, Garfield Park holds the title for a lot of them. There’s an indoor garden in the conservancy, the sunken gardens and the Children’s Garden.
My girls just love seeing the beautiful plants in the large children’s garden beds, pointing out colors and trying to identify familiar plants (although most are unfamiliar to them).
Take your kids and check out the cool Alphabet Garden, kids can see plants that have names for every letter in the alphabet — they can search for letters that spell out their names and the plants associated with them. They’ll also enjoy the Five Senses gardens, the Rainbow Garden and the Salsa Garden.
The Children’s Garden is located right behind the Conservancy. The garden is open during regular Conservancy hours and other parts of the garden are accessible at all times (alphabet garden, rainbow garden and others). There are monthly programs available for kids to come and dig, plant and harvest the garden.
In the evenings at Garfield Park during the warmer months, don’t miss the lighted water fountains in the Sunken Gardens. In the spring, the don’t miss event is the Keep What You Pull Tulip Day!
